I realize no one is relying on the Land Use Prof blog for breaking news (thank heaven) but it's interesting to note that there have been two relatively major earthquakes in the continental US in the last two days. One struck Colorado near the New Mexico border last night shortly before midnight. The other hit Richmond, Virginia shortly before 2:00 this afternoon, and was felt up and down the Eastern Seaboard (including here in Athens, although not by this blogger, who was in an office near a active rail yard at the time).
No speculation being reported yet about any relationship between the two quakes.
